Its just coffee dating

The last of my still-single law school girlfriends showed up for dinner this past Friday with a 1.5-carat engagement ring.Meanwhile, I’m nursing a broken heart from my most recent attempt at a relationship.It all starts with a phone call – a confidential conversation during which one of our dating specialists can answer your questions and give you more details about the It’s Just Lunch dating process. We’ll learn what you’re looking for in a potential partner, what’s worked for you in past relationships and – just as importantly – what hasn’t worked.We’ll ask about your relationship goals, personal interests, hobbies and more.Since what I’m really looking for is a high-earner with the financial wherewithal to slip a ,000 ring onto my left hand after a whirlwind courtship, it seemed like a reasonable price…

I’d previously ruled it out as too sad or desperate.After dates, I would have to give “brutally honest feedback” to my rep, who would use the information to further refine subsequent matches.I wouldn’t even have to share contact information or make reservations—my IJL rep will tell me when and where to go.And don’t get me started on meeting a potential husband in a bar.Bars in Chicago are populated by three types: (i) snotty, preppy North Shore guys that I would rather pick a fight with than attempt to flirt; (ii) guys from the Western suburbs who all work at the Board of Trade and are not interested in committed relationships; and (iii) college kids.My friends have run out of single guys to introduce me to.There’s even a running joke about the fact that I’ve dated THREE childhood friends of one of my law school classmates.All this kept my mind returning to those It’s Just Lunch in-flight magazine ads I resorted to reading on my last flight after I abandoned whatever dep transcripts I was supposed to be reviewing.Aside from the ridiculous name, I couldn’t help but find something a little bewitching about the concept. ” Moreover, it seems that any man who would sign himself up for It’s Just Lunch MUST be incredibly desperate, and having that upper hand does wonders for my insecurities.The building directory ever-so-discreetly listed my destination as “IJL.” Walking into the “happy” yellow-walled lobby and blaring Frank Sinatra initially sickened me, but luckily Lizzie and her Limited Express sexy-executive pantsuit whisked me into her private office before I had time to fixate.Her walls were adorned with framed, triumphant-looking human interest articles from a variety of second-rate publications.
